John 3:16

I Needed This ...

I decided to go to Weight Watchers this morning to weigh in. My reason to start it initially was to be accountable. Since I've been on the "lifetime" status having to weigh in only once a month, I've taken advantage of it and been quite slack. Last Thursday, July 31, was the last day that month I had to weigh in. This gave me a reason to start being serious again. My weight had dropped about 3 pounds before going in so it was a good start.

Today, I went to weigh in again since I had the chance to run often this week as I wanted to see what progress I had made. My weight fluctuated at the beginning of the week 3 pounds a day sometimes. All I wanted was to have dropped at least a half pound from last week's weigh in and I would be satisfied. But I really felt like I had done better because I "felt" better. So, I donned my "weigh in" clothes (you know, the lightest weighted ones you can find) and jumped on my WW scales to see how it would compare to theirs. I always do this and sometimes it is as much a difference as a pound! Hey, that's a lot when they count in half pound increments. Anyway, I got my figure and off I went. When I got on the scales I was happy because I knew I had dropped at least a pound and half and was excited about that. BUT, to my surprise, I had dropped 3.5 pounds in a week!!!! WOW!! I was so elated and happy to see that my running and diligence in feeding my body better had paid off. Next goal ... keep it up!

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
